The Great Courses
"The Wisdom of History"
2:00-3:30 pm
Litchfield Community Center
Do the lessons passed down to us by history, lessons whose origins
may lie hundreds, even thousands, of years in the past, still have value
for us today? Is Santayana's oft-repeated saying, "Those who cannot
remember the past are condemned to repeat it" merely a way to offer
 lip service to history as a teacher--or can we learn from it?
